Quick Project

I have a quick little project to share.
I saw an arrangement in a local gift shop that I just loved but the $76 price tag!  Hm….. not so much.So, I decided to copy it — all that was needed was a pocket basket, some silk flowers and a bird’s nest.
I went to my local thrift shop and purchased this lovely basket along with several stems of hydrangea.The bird’s nest is an old Christmas ornament I had and I raided my stash of old silk flowers and found the dogwood.

Then, I went to Michael’s and purchased a sprig of yellow flowers on sale and a small bottle of chalkboard paint.

I painted the Christmas scene out with the chalkboard paint, added a little florist foam into the bottom of the basket to secure the flowers and a small amount of florist tape to anchor the bird’s nest to the basket and voila !!!

A cute addition to my back door for under $5!!!

Now, if I can only keep the wrens from building a nest in it…….



“Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.”
Proverbs 19:21 The Holy Bible
